Borne out of a journey to self-realization, the EP produced in collaboration with Humphrey Ndomboka (Tanzanian based Zimbabwean producer) ‘ONA SASA’ EP was produced in Tanzania by the acclaimed entertainment outfit: Wanene Entertainment. Its theme includes topics on self-love and consciousness. Speaking of his upcoming EP launch, Mandela says: “I am excited to finally present my fans with my debut EP. This is a labour of love and I thank all those who have supported me on it. I feel good about my first work of art and can’t wait for all fans to get the physical copies” adding, “I also hope that each song off this project will inspire and impact listeners positively so as we can bring change in the society. This is why I do music.”
